Writers' Cafe / Re: Do you have multiple editors?
« on: July 30, 2016, 09:56:27 pm »
As an editor myself, I agree with the idea of multiple people looking at a project.  It's too easy to read something and get "comfortable" with it after reviewing something so many times over. 

Fresh eyes are definitely key, and that's where communication with the client becomes so important.  It's not only highlighting issues and fixing the areas that need improvement, it's pointing out those changes and adjustments.  I like to educate through my editing processes so that the client can become a stronger writer.  People notice mistakes.

Writing and editing is absolutely a "team" effort.

As an editor who is working to offer my services to writers, this was some very useful feedback to me as well, especially for the "Do" and "Don't" guidelines.  It's one thing to offer what you think what people want versus what people actually do want.

Hello all,

My name is Guy and I'm offering my story editing services to the KBoards readership.

My fiancee (Jennifer) and I work together to provide quality editing and fast service to writers.  We work with you as a "team partner" to strengthen your writing so you provide your readership the most polished story possible.  We provide two sets of fresh eyes and native English speaking backgrounds.

Here is a link to my website (with prices):

We offer free writing samples to make sure we are a good fit for each other.

We are open-minded with various genres and look forward to working with you.  :)

- Guy
